The Artemisia Files: Artemisia Gentileschi for Feminists and Other Thinking People
One of the first female artists to achieve recognition in her own time, Artemisia Gentileschi became instantly popular in the 1970s when feminist art historians discovered her and argued vehemently for a place for her in the history of Italian baroque painters. In The Artemisia Files, Mieke Bal and her co-authors look squarely at this early icon of feminist art history and the question of her status as an artist.
Considering the events that shaped her life and reputation, the authors make the case that Artemisia’s importance is due to more than her role as a poster child in early feminist views on traditional art history, but that Artemisia emerges more fully as a highly original artist whose work is greater than the sum of the events that have traditionally defined her.
The fresh, engaging discourse in The Artemisia Files will help to renew the reputation of this artist on the merit of her work and establish her rightful place in the history of art.
